inspired leadership

Steve Jobs knew how to inspire people. So did Howard Schultz when he rescued Starbucks. What did these two men have that so many other leaders don’t? Inspired leadership.

Today on Business Reimagined, Nancy Duarte talks to all types of leaders. It doesn’t matter if you’re leading a small group or global powerhouse. You’ve got to be a torchbearer, the type of leader who can shed light on an organization’s journey, even if it’s into unfamiliar and risky territory.

      • At 6:00 – Nancy describes the 5-act structure an organization goes through as they collectively strive for a goal, and the warning indicators that accompany each phase.
      • At 10:00 – Nancy discusses how moments become ‘movements’ that your employees, or travelers, can get behind, and it all has to do with staying tuned in with each other.
      • At 14:00 – Nancy discusses how moments become ‘movements’ that your employees, or travelers, can get behind, and it all has to do with staying tuned in with each other.
      • At 19:00 – Manufacturing movements or creating insincere moments is the quickest way to invite resentment and distrust among your employees, and Nancy discusses the pitfalls and how NOT to do that.
